Tasmanian airports are preparing for their busiest Christmas-New Year's period on record when borders reopen to the vaccinated on December 15, allowing for new routes to achieve their potential.
The government has also further clarified the process for people coming from the mainland and the amount of compliance checks that will occur during the booking and arrival process.
A new platform is being developed to move beyond the G2G PASS system, for travellers to declare that they're fully vaccinated and have tested negative 72 hours before travel if coming from a high risk area.
When flight tickets are purchased, airlines will provide "guidance" on the rules of the destination state and ask whether or not the traveller adheres to those.
At check-in, travellers will again be asked to confirm they have met the criteria.
Premier Peter Gutwein said the government will continue to place staff in interstate airports to outline requirements for entering Tasmania, although they will not have the power to stop people boarding a plane.
When arriving in Tasmania, evidence - which can be shown via the app - will need to be provided to a biosecurity officer regarding double vaccination and pre-travel testing, if required.
Mr Gutwein said spot checking would also occur at airports.
"One of the things that we need to ensure is that the identification of the person behind the check-in, that they are that person. And so we will be spot checking, and pulling people out of the line, and we will be doing those further verification checks as well," he said.
On-the-spot fines of $1557 will be given for failing to comply.
Launceston Airport is expecting 320 flights per week from December 15, up from an average pre-Christmas period of 260 per week.
Airport chief executive officer Shane O'Hare said they wanted to make the arrival process as quick and easy as possible.
"A quick check of vaccination and testing status, backed up by random ID checks should provide Tasmanians with confidence that the rules are being adhered to," he said.
"We're expecting record numbers of travellers will want to visit Northern Tasmania once the borders to Victoria and New South Wales open next month, and we want their experience to be as easy as possible.
"Throughout the pandemic, we've worked co-operatively with the state government to ensure the safe and efficient entry of passengers into Tasmania and we look forward to that partnership continuing.
"Given the high levels of vaccination across our community, we would encourage the government to drop any form of pre-departure testing, given the extra impost it places on would-be travellers."
